SHARE especially needs Spanish speakers of all abilities to help provide the best support for our clients. Opportunities are available for high-school students and adults and can be tailored to suit a wide range of skills and time commitments–including joining us for a single event or working from home. Please email us at to learn more.

Share depends on volunteers who currently donate over 1000 hours of service per month.  Volunteers serve in roles that range from medical transportation to furniture delivery to family assistance coordination and many other important jobs.  We welcome anyone- whether you can devote time every week or only join us for certain events and activities.  Share provides opportunities for high school students to fulfill their community service requirements and welcomes service groups from local civic organizations and houses of worship.
